Description/Standards Tabs


Native Americans also participated in the American Revolution.  The Catawbas, for the most part, sided with the Colonialist Patriots, due to their friendship, and ties to settlers in the surrounding areas.  The larger Cherokee tribes sided with the British. The Cherokee saw the British as more powerful, and desired to protect their land from further encroachment by settlers.
